Dorset Earth Mysteries Group - Talks on Everything from Archaeology to Dowsing

Dorset Earth Mysteries Group

Talks in Detail 2016

January 7th
Geraldine Beskin
Beating the Bounds
The Parish boundaries are walked, driven, ridden and sailed over every year as they are still an important way of defining areas. The Church should get them done before Easter but nowadays they are marked whenever people are free and it makes for a good day out. Property developers are not particularly known for their historical awareness but the Parish records can throw up useful covenants and restrictions to halt demolition sometimes and it is fun to find out why somewhere is called what it is. I think I have found beating the bounds to be a very clear pre-Christian survival that is thriving today.

February 4th
Andrew Gough
The Hidden Hive of History
Andrew Gough is a writer, television presenter and enthusiast of ancient lands, mysteries and traditions. His presentation, ‘The Hidden Hive of History’, will examine the lost tradition of what he believes to be the most deified god or goddess that has ever existed; the honeybee – the forgotten god of the ancients. Andrew will graphically chronicle a sacred tradition that his research suggests has existed for over 100 million years. In the process, he will reveal how an awareness of the veneration of the honeybee brings new insight into enigmas such as Atlantis, the Labyrinth of Knossos, the Sphinx, Goddess Worship, the Grail, the birth of Religion, Politics, Illuminati, and much more.

March 3rd
Andy Thomas
The Crop Circle Mysteries
With stunning visuals, Andy explores the extraordinary phenomenon of crop circles, the intricate shapes which appear in fields around the world each summer and still defy total explanation despite media scepticism and much debate. This lively and inspiring presentation explains the fascinating history of the mysterious patterns up to the present and explores how both the designs and some of the intriguing and imaginative theories concerning them have developed over the years.

April 7th
Steve Dawson
Hartmann and Curry grids
Our planet earth is surrounded by a highly complex grid of energy lines, rather like a hair net. Actually, it’s more accurate to say two grids, the Hartmann and Curry Lines. Steve Dawson, an ex-military diver and now a dowser will talk about their discovery by two German doctors, and also how these lines affect the landscape and the creatures upon it.

May 12th
Trish Mills
The Perpetual Choirs and the Decagon
2nd Thursday
'The Interconnectedness of All Things – From the Perpetual Choirs of Britain to the present day' was written by John Gibson-Forty. Unfortunately, John had a massive stroke shortly after publication, and as his publisher, Trish Mills has been doing talks on his behalf. In a nutshell, the Perpetual Choirs were three choirs, probably comprised of early monks, saints or Druids, who maintained ceaseless chanting on a rolling rota basis, 24/7, for the ongoing enchantment of Britain. Their area of influence dowsed as being a ten-sided Decagon centred on Whiteleaved Oak and Ragged Stone Hill in the Malvern Hills. During his research, John inadvertently discovered that energy lines are constantly increasing and decreasing in width. He eventually figured out why, and Trish reveals the secret to the mystery. Trish, Chairman of Slimbridge Dowsing Group, has presented this talk many times; the Hundredth Monkey effect has kicked in (tipping point) and today folks are singing the lines - annually, worldwide - in the hope of bringing back some of the enchantment.

June 2nd
Short Talks Evening and AGM
Members will be presenting a variety of short talks. This evening is open to all, and proved a great success in 2014/2015.

Tina Reidy – Ley lines, Susy Ellis – Coincidences

The AGM will follow.

July 7th
Frank Perry
The World of Singing Bowls
Working with the singing bowls since 1971 Frank lists over 200 types of bowls in his book. He will introduce us to some of these from the three categories that he gives. He will demonstrate some of the acoustical properties of bowls and some of their applications within the world of meditation.

August 4th
David Ash
The Vortex Theory
The Vortex Theory originating from ancient Yogic Philosophy provides an account of subatomic particles, as spherical vortices of energy, which explains the properties of matter such as inertia, mass and three dimensional extension. Extending vortex energy also sets up the force fields including electric charge, magnetism and gravity. It also accounts for 'curved space'. Einstein’s theory of gravity and the quantum mechanical account for forces are contested. The vortex theory can also explain high energy physics, matter and antimatter, nuclear energy, the strong nuclear force, wave-particle duality and many other properties of matter. It rewrites quantum theory. The vortex theory replaces quark theory and quantum mechanics with a far simpler model of quantum reality and opens the door to the possibility of dimensions of reality beyond the speed of light.
The Yogic perception of the vortex of energy, offering an all embracing view of the Universe, was first presented from the historic rostrum of Michael Faraday at the Royal Institution of Great Britain on January 15th 1975 and published twenty years later. In the 1995 publication the effect known as dark energy published by Saul Perlmutter in 1997, was predicted. The Vortex theory, is validated according to the scientific method. It is a sound scientific theory.

Marion Matthews
Super Clues to Reality
Mark Booth Cancelled
What is the fundamental nature of our reality? Who exactly are we, and what are we doing here? These are the questions that Marion asked myself before she wrote her first book Aspects of reality- a user’s guide to the universe. She looked at science of the very small, cosmology, spirituality, consciousness, ancient wisdom, life beyond physical death and much much more. She identified hundreds of different factors, or aspects, that seem to interact to create our reality. Whilst she was giving talks about the main 7 Aspects of reality that she identified, Marion came to understand that buried within some of these aspects were super clues to a level of reality that is beyond our usual understanding. There were clues, in plain sight, to a big picture of our reality that we are not usually taught exists.
Her research is not yet complete, but she would love to share the insights and knowledge that she has acquired so far. Follow her on this journey, your input, as always, is welcome.

October 6th
Paul Broadhurst
Axis of Heaven
Paul will unearth the hidden knowledge that inspired many famous historical figures. The cast of those who linked themselves to this ancient tradition includes the Normans, Plantagenets and Tudors, whose favourite royal palace stood at Greenwich. Queen Elizabeth’s court mathematician, astronomer and astrologer Dr John Dee was a leading expert on maps and meridians and one of the prime movers in a great age of discovery.
The Stuarts, who were immersed in the old mystical lore of Britain, built the Queen’s House and Royal Observatory to mark the Axis and initiate a new era of scientific endeavour. Others, from Saxon kings and early astronomical pioneers who mapped the heavens, to Sir Christopher Wren, a Grand Master Freemason, who built the observatory and helped establish Greenwich as a centre of astronomical and scientific excellence, also knew of its symbolic power and ancient connection with the stars.

November 3rd
Martin Green
A Landscape revealed
The Down Farm Landscape (where Martin’s family has farmed for generations) is one of the most carefully studied areas in Western Europe. Much of this work has been carried out by Martin himself - who in 1992 won the Pitt Rivers award for independent archaeology. He and his work (which has involved five universities and one of the major field units were recently featured in a BBC 2 'Meet the Ancestors' programme. The farm is part of Cranborne Chase, just south of Salisbury (where, coincidentally, the famous General Pitt Rivers began his pioneering work in the 1880s). It not only contains the Neolithic Dorset Cursus, numerous long barrows and Hambledon Hill, but over the last 30 years henges, shafts, plastered houses, land divisions, enclosures and cemeteries have been identified and excavated.

Andrew Gough
Rennes le Chateau
The story of Rennes-le-Château is fantastical, even mystical. Or is it? One school of thought claims it’s a complete hoax. Another believes it is one of the greatest mysteries of our time. Perhaps the truth lies somewhere in-between.
